Keith Olbermann Calls Out Carrie Prejean

by at . Comments

Keith Olbermann, in the video below, addressing Carrie Prejean:

Your grandfather did not fight to protect your right to answer a question during a network television soft porn special without consequences or fallout... He fought to protect you from having the government stop us from speaking our minds.

We know you despise Olbermann, Conservatives. And it's hard for even the most left-wing nut to defend his maniacal rants sometimes.

But we beseech readers - in the interest of open, fair debate - to watch and listen to the MSNBC host's take on Prejean below. He doesn't mention gay marriage once, instead focusing on the illogical argument that Carrie was somehow simply exercising her right to free speech.

As referenced in the quote above, Olbermann argues:

  • The First Amendment has nothing to do with getting flak for speaking one's mind; it simply protects a citizen from being imprisoned for that act.
  • Moreover, Carrie wasn't punished for her answer, as she claims. She's received national acclaim and didn't even lose her crown, despite blatantly violating her contract!

All of Prejean's supporters say it's unfair to attack someone for exercising her freedom of speech. But what if she said she believes all African-Americans should be slaves? Would critics be allowed to pounce on her then? It's just her opinion, right?

Also, let's not forget: Prejean said her latest round of topless photos were due to a "windy day." We mean... come on!!!

Carrie Prejean is the that cause her misery, her problem is, that she paints herself as a evangelical christian, and yet she does the very opposite,she lied on her Miss USA application,and even if she wasn't fired for that, she should have been, because the sweet christian, is not all she portrays her self be, what saddens me the most, is how some of these so call Christians can and be against anyone having basic human rights, like marrying the person they choose to spend their life with. Gay people deserves the same rights and freedoms that all American enjoy. I am married woman with three wonderful children and have loved every moment of it, so why shouldn't everyone have the right to that type of happiness, and I am not Gay,and I believe in equalily for all people.

Obermann rocks.....this girl is a media whoring BIMBO! End of argument. How about we focus on the economy...the unemployment rate, health care and the fact that the majority of our children are hungry.

An addition to to the above post I meant obviously not everyone agrees that only tradional marraige should exist. There is only conflict that same sex couples believe they should also have the same privileges, not about taking them away from straight couples.

Also gender is not the same as sex. So 'gender based' doesn't mean anything since gender can be transgressed, while typically there is only two types of sexes, man and woman. If you're saying that traditional marraige is between a man and a woman then that's correct. But obviously not everyone agrees that just because something is traditional that it is right. Your statement about passing down genes relates to the previous post about power because men wouldn't want their lineage broken, this relates to having control and power over not only women, but their gene pool and later to protect their name and family business. If you can't see that relates to control then that is naive. like another post says about critical thinking...as for talk of sexy ass sheep and cows...ok then...

you need to get a clue- marraige wasn't even discussed in the 'primitive world' in that post. Its a fairly modern phenomenon ie stemming from religion. It didn't even exist in caveman days

I have decided to announce, here on this blog, at this time, that I am gay. While many of you have known it for years (including my former "tag-team partner" Dan Patrick, whom people secretly suspected of being gay himself), I thought I should make it official. SO YOU STUPID @##$$%#$! CARRIE UNDERWEAR, HOW DARE YOU?! I'M GONNA SHOW YOU, I'M GONNA BE A BIGGER DIVA THAN YOU EVER COULD BE! (Cries) My (sobbing) new tag-team partner Chris Matthews, thanks for consoling me............................

Firstly Ann, not everyone was put on this earth to procreate. If they were,the world would be over populated. Secondly it obviously does take a brain surgeon if you can't acknowledge that homosexuals can consummate their union. Thirdly marraige has never been a 'gender based' institution. It started as a male dominated one created by men to have ownership over women, slowly evolving through the ages taking particularl dominance after the industrial revolution to protect the name and heir of family businesses through to now (at least in the western world) where we have the culture of celebrity and romantacised versions which may or may not have 'gender based' equality, depending on the relationship between the couple.

Carrie Prejean Quotes

I think it's great that Americans are able to choose one or the other. We live in a land that you can choose same-sex marriage or opposite marriage and, you know what, in my country and my family I think that I believe that a marriage should be between a man and a woman. No offense to anyone out there but that's how I was raised and that's how I think it should be between a man and a woman.

Carrie Prejean

Marriage is good. There is something special about unions of husband and wife. Unless we bring men and women together, children will not have mothers and fathers.
